Talk:Anionic addition polymerization
|WikiProject Chemistry||(Rated C-class, Low-importance)|
Reminder: it is an ironclad principle in Wiki to have the name of the article in bold as in
Anionic addition polymerization is an anionic addition polymerization of vinyl monomers that is initiated by a strong base, such as an alkali amide, or an organometallic compound, such as n-butyllithium.

- I cleaned up this article and removed the cleanup tag. But it could still be improved by a PhD in chemistry (perhaps by describing the anionic formation of polyethers ?). JoJan 1 July 2005 21:40 (UTC)

- I'm assuming what JoJan meant, was that a PhD in the field of this article would probably do the best job expanding and improving upon it. Many topics in Wikipedia are considerably easier to work fon or people with a background in the field, compared to the common layperson. In my opinion, she is correct and has done a good job thus far on the article Naha|(talk) 16:32, July 15, 2005 (UTC)
According to Collins English Dictionary the word Plexiglass does exist (and it is US Trademark). JoJan 15:53, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
- Just wanted to address this remark. Both cannot be true in the above statement. "Plexiglas" (one 's') is a trademark, it is not possible that "plexiglass" is also a trademark. Therefore since it (plexiglass) is not a trademark, it cannot be a word. A more simple explanation is a misspelling (or misreading on JoJan's part).Tstrobaugh 16:03, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
- Collins dictionary gives : Plexiglass (U.S. Trademark)
- Webster new Collegiate dictionary : Plexiglas (one s) (trademark)
- Longman Modern English dictionary : plexiglass, plexiglas (both words with a small p) (from Plexiglas, trademark)
- Concise Oxford dictionary : plexiglass (small p, two s) (no reference to a trademark)
- Whatever it is, small letter p or capital letter P, one s or two s : the word exists. But if even dictionaries give different explanations, who am I to decide ? JoJan 18:07, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
